CASTING  &  BECOMING A GF&CO ASSOCIATE MEMBER ARTIST 

The most important thing to know about working with us, is that our work is based in the performance technique OTOA (One-Thought-One-Action)


GF&CO is proud of our community of member talented, working professionals, theater artists who have trained in the OTOA performance technique.

As a studio-lab we are interested in "slow theater", creating a project incrementally and enriching the content through residencies, rehearsals, that allow us to experiment with form and style, as well as to build a strong OTOA-based team. Therefore we do not make casting commitments until we are in preparing for production. However, as GF&CO associate members work on the develop a project, they build an investment in the roles and we give them the offer of a first refusal. 

GF&CO Members receive OTOA Performance Technique workshops gratis.

CURRENT CASTING/PROJECT:

We are currently developing a new original, scripted experimental (movement-based) performance project. We are growing this piece in stages. 
2018 has been dedicated to developing he script.
2019 will be devoted to experimenting on our feet with building a movement vocabulary in conjunction with the scripted text. 

BELOW IS A LIST OF THE ROLES FOR THIS PROJECT  


THE NARRATOR: (Gender and age are open for interpretation):

A Guide. A Host. A point of view, a sense of humor: Time & Space.

 

THE FATHER: (50's, any ethnicity): Larger than Life but with human limitations; loves to laugh; a heart that swells to twice its normal size; speaks with a Western twang (from a place called Wyomin’), from a country that no longer exists; The Prophet; The Philosopher; a cross between Socrates, Zorba The Greek, Tevye (from Fiddler on The Roof), and Buffalo Bill; Time is Memory.

 

THE WOMAN (The Daughter: Late 20’s - early 40’s, any ethnicity,): Wide open, raw, sensuous, and grounded like a helium balloon on a string with a lead weight; where logic meets intuition; where vulnerability meets strength; where feeling is as full as a cherry tree in blossom; re-turning, re-searching, re-memorizing; Time is Fluid.

 

THE MAN (The Lover: Late 30’s -- mid 40's, any ethnicity): Armored, with a rugged sex appeal; attracted to her vision of him; has lost his personal mythology; struggling to over come his own stereo-type; Time is Linear.
